WASHINGTON (AP) - Vice President Dick Cheney, who has a history of heart problems, experienced an irregular heartbeat Monday and will be evaluated at George Washington University Hospital.Gee, Dick, I hope nothing goes very wrong :D
I have the same heart affliction that Uncle Dick has and its unfortunately easily kept under control with medications. However we can always hope for the low end of the bell curve to take precedence.
I was watching nonstop coverage of Cheney heading off to GWU Hospital a few minutes ago while working out. One of the most disgusting pieces of video CNN showed was Cheney pinning some medal on a kid freshly back from Iraqnam. I was hoping against hope that once the medal was pinned on the kid would have said something like "Don't you feel the least bit guilty pinning a medal on me after you received five deferments to avoid service in Vietnam?" But, no, the kid probably wants to be a General some day so he can't tell the truth. It was still fun fantasizing.
